Late to the Ball - Group Shot from PeterD

Ok I am very, very late in posting this.  I don't even have a good excuse like Paul, although many claim that I am at sea most of the time.  However, all my Uni exams are marked and recorded and it's all over but the crying so I finally got round to posting these photos that were taken a month ago.



Here's the group shot of most of what I did this winter - all of my SYW figures.  Touraine and Diesbach regiments on the left, Royal Welsh Fusiliers behind the musicians in the middle and Fischer's chasseurs to the right.  Missing are my 1;1200 planes which wouldn't show up well in this wide a shot (ok I forgot about them), and my Curtgeld which has been delivered in tribute.


I'd been in the modelling doldrums since mid-March as end of semester came on me.  However, lately I've been picking up the brush and glue.  Here I am with three pieces of terrain I put together last week - three very enjoyable evenings spent in from of the TV building Sarissa Productions kits.  There are two bridges (with three additional spans) and a windmill.

    1. Cheers Barks. Horton has been appearing in various places to surprise my wife and I. I left him in place because he makes me smile every time that i see him

  3. Great work Pete! You made great inroads on your SYW collection. I'll start a pool to see when someone in the group accidentally mauls that beautiful windmill while reaching for the chips. ;)

    1. Thanks Curt. The windmill was a birthday present from Lynne, and it's lovely kit. No one gets to vote for themselves on that pool!
